It's been a while since I last bought any Japanse sweets. Yesterday we went to get my father in law some birthday presents and happened to see this chestnut daifuku.
Some of you know I'm a chestnut freak. So I immediately asked hubby to pay for it. 3 daifuku for 630yen, pretty pricy, but it's Taneya, can't really complain.
I had so many Japanese sweets last year I really got sick of the red bean paste thing. That's why I haven't touched any Japanese sweets for months. But this one has an entire chestnut in it so it's a different story. (^^)b
Fresh daifuku don't last long (only 1 or 2 days) so we ate them after we got home. The texture of the "skin" was made from real sticky rice so it's not smooth like what you usually see. But of course they mixed it with sticky rice powder as well so it's actually a good mix. Slight firm and yet smooth and soft.
Oh and the red bean filling was not too sweet, just how I liked it. And the best part was of course the chestnut wrapped by red bean paste. heehee YUM!
But I still miss the sweet potato daifuku I had last year. I got it from Kintetsu department store but since it was limited production it's not available all year round. I don't think I can ever run into another delicious daifuku like that anymore.......ahhh, miss it so much.
